Location based portraiture for families, children, individuals, or couples. Any Location. Any time of year.

Why chose a location portrait session?

It’s often said to me that people feel far more comfortable in the great outdoors or their own home as opposed to a mundane studio environment. The pictures taken on location will say so much more about you and your family; they capture a moment in time that will tell a story, something that you can look back upon for years to come.

On location, the sessions will capture a series of natural, spontaneous moments mixed with formal imagery that produce a variety of images that you will treasure forever. The sessions can be held at any time of year, and at any agreed location. The options really are endless.

Location portraiture sessions last at least an hour, often more.

There are a range of final product options, including:

  • prints
  • wall-art (traditional and canvas prints etc.)
  • high resolution digital files
  • keepsake albums

How a Location Portraiture session works…

The most straightforward form of location portraiture is to meet at an agreed spot where I will use the natural light and environment to capture a wide variety of images for you.

The sessions usually last between one and two hours, and can involve multiple locations. For example, we could begin at your home and then move onto a suitable local outdoor area. I don’t work to a stopwatch; the session ends when either the client has tired (children?) or I believe that I have captured a wide enough variety of images to fulfil your expectations.

Location portraiture sessions are particularly useful for families who wish to gather their entire group together for a memorable event (Grandparents, siblings, Grandchildren etc.). The outdoor environment provides a range of suitable backdrops and is of course far more inviting and enjoyable than being squashed into a studio. Pets are a welcome addition too! I will of course capture all of the relevant groups within the shoot as required. Another key advantage of these sessions is that the costs can of course be more easily shared between the family members.

After the session, the images will be graded, edited and enhanced by me before being displayed in your own private online gallery. After you have had time to savour the images we will need to meet again and discuss the product options available to you.

What to wear / What to avoid!

This is just a simple guide to help you get the best results from your session. It’s worth giving consideration to what you will wear as your choice of clothing really can make a big difference to the final look of the images I create. To get the most from your session why not bring a change of clothing, or wear something that can be easily swapped (jumpers / jackets etc). Here’s the lists…

What really helps:

Bright colours! Especially for children, red, orange and blues. Complimentary colours and styles.

What doesn’t work so well:

  • Large logos, brand names.
  • Some greens.
  • Dull colours.
  • Cartoon characters.

Family

One Day with Neal

One Day With… your family…

Your family is unique, and as life moves on you’ll appreciate how quickly everything changes. How many times have you heard the line.. “they’ll grow up too fast”? Think back to your own childhood… how precious would it be to be able to re-live one of those everyday mornings, afternoons or evenings with your family? Memories that preserve:

  • the breakfast table battles…
  • the rush to be ready for school…
  • tug-of-war over a favourite toy…
  • that hug from Dad as he heads off to work…

These are all routine elements of daily life that come and go before you know it.

There comes a time though when you will realise that these ordinary everyday moments were really precious; and now that they’re gone you’ll miss them more than you ever imagined.

My “One Day With” family sessions are intended to turn these ordinary everyday moments into lasting memories that you will treasure. Honest and authentic family life as it really is.

The sessions should last at least three hours or more, and amount to me being with you and your family… watching, waiting, shooting, in a creative documentary way. Minimal posing, maximum authenticity.

The images from these sessions can be turned into a precious family album, a contemporary video, or a striking pieces of art for your wall. Please see the pricing section below for details of the package options available.

 

 

These are the sort of moments that I aim to capture for your family….

One Day With… your business…

My “One Day With” sessions are a great way for businesses to have a series of authentic, contemporary images that will highlight what your business is all about. I would need an insight into your business and would invite direction from you as to how you want your business to be portrayed before commencing the shoot. Listening and understanding your needs is essential for me to deliver the images that you desire. You might wish to highlight something like…

  • the bespoke nature of what you do
  • the quality and craftsmanship of your product
  • the way you work together as a team

The direction and purpose is really up to you.

The sessions should last at least three hours and maybe more, and amount to me being with your business… watching, waiting, shooting, in a creative documentary way. Minimal posing, maximum authenticity.

The images from these sessions can be used for a variety of promotional uses, from website and social media promotions to general advertising and indeed any form of business promotion. Please see the pricing section below for details of the package options available.

Here’s an example of a recent shoot for Lucie, a jeweller and her online business at https://www.sophia-alexander.com/

“Absolutely perfect photos. Amazing eye and talent! Thank you for spending the time to make sure we got every shot we need for the new website. Highly recommended service for any business”
